Basic Drawing 1W23

We’ll be covering the basics you need to begin your drawing journey! We’ll be talking about drawing from shapes, sketching places and figures, basic perspective, light and shadow, and more! Be prepared to explore visual concepts.

*No class on Presidents' Day

*This class will occur upstairs in the Art Room


I registered for this class because I recently retired and wanted to rediscover my interest in drawing after many, many years.  I really liked Eli's presentation of our lesson every week and felt I learned a lot.  I'm eager to continue to move forward!


I wanted to learn a new skill and do a better job of drawing with my kids.  I was impressed with how much I learned in a very short period of time!
